Got a refurb'd S6... rooted it but kept marshmallow 6.0.1 on it. Now it seems to randomly disable the power button, not letting me shut off the screen. This it the second time today, and I can still send it back and get a full refund (pretty sure) since it's refurb'd. Does anyone know what causes this? Would putting a custom ROM on prevent this? Should I just send it back instead?

Other notes: if I power down after this happens (putting it on the charging cable and holding power [OH HEY IT WORKS GRR] and vol down) I can get into download mode. But I can't get into recovery mode, and the LED light is still on. This happened earlier today, and I flashed the stock ROM and then re-rooted.

Moved from the Marshmallow forum to the S6 forum, since it's more of a device-specific issue.
